My understanding of what the "ST" means is steel. But, it's not the receiver, it's the magazine tube. When they changed to the "AL", they changed the magazine tube to aluminum. I have an early 390ST and it has the steel tube.



Nope, as an earlier poster advised:

The "ST" meant Sparatutto or "SparaTutto" which was a loose way of saying "Shoots All."

The distinction was that, unlike the prior 300 series gas guns, you could shoot 2-3/4 in. - 3 inch loads interchangeably, no buying two barrels or a "magnum" barrel.
